Pete Dunne def. Trent Seven in a WWE U.K. Championship No. 1 Contender’s Match
With his right arm heavily bandaged following an attack by Pete Dunne, Trent Seven appeared willing to lose a limb against The Bruiserweight if it meant earning a WWE U.K. Title opportunity in Chicago at NXT TakeOver. Though Seven’s arm remained attached to his body, barely, Dunne left Norwich with a guaranteed championship match following the exceptionally ferocious duel.
The battle ran wild both inside and outside from start to finish, with both competitors fighting tooth-and-nail. This included Seven executing an earth-shattering Dangerous Dragon Suplex on the apron that nearly resulted in a double count-out.
In the height of the action, after another series of big hits, The Mustache Mountain representative shook Dunne with a back fist, but the persistent brawler forged ahead and ultimately locked Seven into the Bitter End, splattering him face-first onto canvas to snare the victory.
